What are you complaining about?

It seems on a day-to-day basis we get to hear Reagan Republicans complain about North Carolina. What is a Reagan Republican? It is a Republican that ignores the party of Lincoln and equality, it is a Republican that ignores the wisdom of Teddy Roosevelt on conservation, it is a Republican that forgets the lessons that Eisenhower taught with the Interstate system and his warning about the Military Industrial Complex. These types of Republicans care about one thing - business. Their goal is simple, to make the United States as friendly as possible to those who own or invest in businesses. This is the mindset of those Pope Puppets here in our own North Carolina. Go read the site, how many articles do you find on guns, gods, and gays compared to articles bashing higher taxes, universal health care, and praising all things "market-based".

To these people I have but one question......

are you complaining about?


Enough, Democrats.

Enough worrying about "temporary taxes", enough playing their games with the budget - enough.
Fund Head Start.
Fund job progams for all the textile mill workers.
Fund health care for all children, so we can stop killing them off.

Enough being wusses, stand up for something other than your corporate donors.

North Carolina. First in Everything.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

What are they complaining about?

They're addicts. They have mainlined and mainstreamed their free-market drugs and now all they can see is MORE MORE MORE.

NCGOP stands for Greedy Old Party.

That's all the explanation required. Greed. Pure and simple.

These tables should be handed out to every voter...

along with statements from the candidates showing which side they support. And, I'm including primary elections here as well.

Nicely said Robert

See, we can agree on something. I'm even one of those evil business owners.

You might not believe this...

but I thought about you and your business when I was writing this and partially rethought and rewrote a portion of it. I'm not anti-business and I don't want to come off as anti-business. I'm anti-"All we care about it profits".

See, we all make a difference

as long as we are willing to join the discussion

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Robert, what is the source of your data? I would like to post this info on a red, red forum I spend some time on, but I need to credit it to a non-partisan source. Thanks! Maybe it's in there and i missed it? If so, I apologize.

Just a point of clarification -

If you are talking about state politics.... Head Start is federal dollars. Fund Smart Start. It actually reaches more children in NC than Head Start. (Yeah, I'm a one trick pony today.)

That's OK, I'm a one-trick pony every day. Didja see that capital punishment statistic in there? Didja? Didja?
